    Well don't worry abt companion.you will be fine:) Is this your first time to America?

    Two year olds behave well or get cranky.depends.some things to remember..
    1)try to book a timing when the child sleep.so when you get into the flight,the child sleeps for few hours,less cranky

    2)British airways is good as they have a lovely playarea in the airport.also first leg is long time.so kid will sleep.

    3)bring books,stickers,playdoh,iPad with kids favorite videos,lollipops to silence the kid(don't use it too much),crayons and colorbooks etc

    4)have a backpack instead of a handbag so that your hands are free.major help!!

    5)even if the child cries,don't worry.there is a space behind the flight size of a small room near the restroom.little private.you should be fine.

    6)carry kids food like gerber.small ones.even flights carry these.also don't worry if the kid does not eat in the flight at all.thats the least of the worry.

    7)before boarding second fight,try to walk with your kid around the airport,or take him to playarea.get him food and tire him so that he sleeps off.

    8)don't give any sleep
    Medicine.

    9)relax and all will be fine.try to get seat in the end or front but not in the middle.

    hope above helps

    Emirates is good with children. I saw the stewardesses hand out colouring books, crayons & possibly toys too.

    Why would you pack.food when the flight has decent kids meals available ? Please talk to emirates customer support to learn about all their services for children including food, liquids, bassinets and entertainment.
